New (?) Barbie Accessories

I don't know if these are new or not, but I haven't seen them before. I didn't buy any, but for the Walmart price point, they look pretty decent.

Tracy India mentioned that there was a sushi set of these as well and I found it on Amazon for the ridiculous price of $9.79. It's still cute though.

  1. These are really cute! I haven't notice them yet at our Walmart, but am going there tomorrow so I will have to check. I love the tiny heart measuring spoons! :)

    1. Farrah, of the 3, the one with the mixer is my top choice. I don't have a single hand mixer so that would be a cool one to have.

    1. Barb, they were in a tiny little bin at my Walmart and I barely noticed them.

  3. Yep, they're fairly new. I first saw them when my Walmart stores started restocking after Christmas. They're pretty cute, but I haven't purchased any...yet. Glad to see you posting again!

    1. Thanks, Jewell! So they've been out for a while. Makes me wonder if there are any other sets I missed.

  4. Super cute! I'm still hoping to find the sushi set. :-). It's so good to see you posting.

    1. Tracy, I did a search for that sushi set on Amazon and Mattel is selling them for $9.79. What a ripoff! I probably would have been tempted to buy that one if I saw it at Walmart.

  5. I haven't seen this cute little accessories bags in my area, but in Spain we get things a while later than in other countries. A few weeks ago I found some of this bags that have clothes on it and I bought a bunch of them. I'd love to find this, because they're super cute, and the ones that may be to pinky can always be repainted.

    Cheers

    1. Hi, Monstercrafts! I have seen the single Mattel outfits in bags, but the quality looked pretty iffy.

      Delete
    2. Hi again! I've opened one of the dresses in bags and I'm not crazy about it. The quality doesn't seem that poor (I've seen worse stuff from Mattel) but the designt is not as cute as I expected. I've also purchased the jean vest, I haven't opened it yet, so I don't know if it feels good quality, but at least it looks realistic.

    3. Thanks for the update on the clothing quality, Monstercrafts. I still haven't purchased any although I did see some of the newer releases.

  7. I have not seen these yet, so they are new to me too! I will have to make a trip to WalMart! I think the mixer set is the cutest too.

    1. Hope you find some, Phyllis! Tracy mentioned there is a sushi set too so I added a pic to the post if you want to be on the look out for it.

  8. They were realesed last year as adding to this fancy Barbie house. Some of the pieces have holes like Lego elements , which sometimes makes them not so stabile.I have make up, mixer and sushi ones. Problematic is bowl with a mixer - do not won't stand alone.The mirror has the same problem. However I love that make up bag really works-you can put things inside.

    1. Thanks for that info, Natalia! I actually purchased some of the Story sets as soon as they came out but these little accessories weren't released at the same time. Yes, I'm not a fan of the accessories that have those stay in place catches.

  9. I haven't seen them, but that doesn't mean much. The crazy way that Walmart is merchandising the Barbie accessories, keeps me from looking at them. I was just in two different Walmarts today. I will have to look next time. I want everything that you have shown. Prices are wonderful.

    1. Vanessa, my Walmarts are being really weird with the way they are displaying stuff too. I thought it was just my area that had stuff all mucked up.

    2. I just bought all of the sets except the sushi one. I didn't see the sushi one, but I have so many sushi pieces, I'm glad it wasn't there. I also bought the guitar set. Mainly because it has a tambourine included. If you hadn't posted this, I would never have scoured the shelves looking for them. I'm so unhappy with the new merchandising (or lack thereof) that I just keep walking. It will save me money in the long run, but I wonder if Mattel is aware of this new display strategy.

  10. I haven't noticed those yet, but they're cute (love the kitch supplies on). I'll keep a watch for them now, so thanks for the heads-up!

    1. Georgia Girl, I looked through 10 pages on Amazon trying to find one with a guitar in it but I gave up, lol. Perhaps I'll see one in the stores.

    1. Hi, Marta! Hopefully they will make it to your country eventually. You always put items to great use in your dioramas.

  16. Unfortunately we don't get the accessory packs here either. It seems OK for our dolls to have dresses but not shoes or bags or anything else. Those accessory packs look good for the price.

    1. Carrickters, you must have some ticked off dolls who have limited access to accessories. They need an uprising against Mattel distribution.

  17. Such gorgeous accessorie, we don't get them here in Sicily. When I was little I had a collection of Barbie dolls too.

  19. We have these sets in my local Walmart. If you want the sushi (I used them for the sushi share special George and Ember had during their date), I can pick up packs for you at the low Walmart price. Let me know. I just saw they were still in stock the other day when I picked up the newest Barbie fashions which were also in.

    1. Aw, thanks for that offer, Janainah but I don't need one. I just like looking at everything, lol.

  20. Well, they're cute and totally new to me :). Thanks for telling us about them. The hand mixer set looks interesting. I have so much miniature food and kitchen related items that I wonder how my poor dolls remain so slender. :D

    1. LOL, Maricha. That plastic they are consuming must be fat and calorie free.

  21. I never thought the day would come when I would spot something before you. :D I have the sushi set: https://www.flickr.com/photos/andersonsallpurpose/16215709568/ It's really cute, but as someone said above the pieces have weird LEGO-like holes (sockets?) on the underside. No idea why. Sadly they were a bit more than $3 or I would have bought the heart-shaped measuring cups too.

    1. Anderson, they've been adding those sockets to accessories for at least two years now. They are the worst! I take my xacto to them when I get them.
